Celgene Medical Educational Grants are awarded in support of high quality, independent educational programs and materials, which demonstrate the potential to improve patient care and health outcomes. Each educational grant awarded must adhere to and be compliant with:
- FDA Final Guidance on Industry-Supported Scientific and Educational Activities,
- Office of Inspector General (OIG) Guidelines,
- Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) Standards for Commercial Support,
- Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals,
- American Medical Association (AMA) Ethical Guidelines for Gifts to Physicians from Industry, and
- Other relevant guidelines and regulations.
Supported programs must be independent, objective, balanced and scientifically rigorous. Grants cannot be tied, in any way, to past, present, or future prescribing, purchasing or recommending (including formulary recommendations) of any drug. Meals provided to attendees in conjunction with an accredited program should be modest and in a manner conducive to a group educational environment (e.g., buffet).
Celgene will consider grant requests for both accredited and non-accredited continuing education; however, preference will be given to accredited educational programs. Celgene will consider requests to support independent medical education programs and activities in the following areas:
- Hematology: Multiple Myeloma, MDS, Lymphoma
- Solid Tumor: Breast, Lung, Pancreatic, Melanoma
- Inflammation: Psoriatic Arthritis, Psoriasis
